2013 October - Tasty Treats
During the school holidays, Betty, an English supporter, sent various parcels containing chocolate wafers, fruity sweets, nuts and dried fruit for the schoolchildren. Kate collected these together and gave them to the Grade 1s and Grade 2s for their morning snack on 4th October, together with locally-purchased ‘fasting biscuits’ (biscuits with no milk or animal fat).
The fruity sweets Betty sent were vegetarian (gelatine-free), so suitable for Ethiopian Orthodox Christians and Muslims.
Needless to say, the children very much enjoyed their snack that day!
